I would prefer to schedule it as three sessions to start -
1. Building the Linux Kernel [ -stable- 3.5.x ] - Kconfig/Kbuild for newbies
2. Linux Kernel architecture transition from 2.6 to 3.5
3. Linux Kernel architecture - overview of sub-systems - basic
architecture for device drivers

I shall need help to select the right schedule and place for each of
the sessions.

Beyond the 3rd session, people who are experts in various subsystems
of the kernel could share more detailed information.

Comments and ideas are welcome.
